Description

Featuring new, revolutionary Target Control​™ (TC​™) Level 1 Technology, the Zircon​® SuperScan​™ K3 advanced wall scanner is tuned for wood studs while filtering out metallic false positive objects, such as plumbing, conduit, straps, brackets, or ducts, hiding behind surfaces. The LoLevel​™ Detector and MetalliWarning​™ allow the SuperScan​™ K3 to detect the presence of dangerous, deep, less dense false positives, and metal targets, reducing the chance of accidentally drilling into a piece of metal or plastic pipe. With the addition of Metal Scan mode, users can interactively narrow and map metal in walls, making for a more robust and multifunctional tool.

The SuperScan​™ K3 offers four distinct detection modes – TC​™, StudScan, DeepScan​®, and Metal Scan. A 3-mode switch makes it easy to toggle between functions, while the ColorTrip​® Display conveniently details information. The screen will illuminate pale blue in TC™ mode and indicate the center, edges, and direction of wood studs, while enabling the user to identify clean, ‘safe-to-drill’ zones by utilizing the new ‘Trust but Verify’ technique. Otherwise, when TC™ mode is off, the tool will perform in StudScan mode indicating both wood and metal studs. DeepScan​® mode doubles the scanning depth to find wood and metal studs beneath extra layers of drywall or paneling. In addition, a dedicated Metal Scan mode helps users identify ferrous metal, such as rebar, and non-ferrous metal, such as copper. The Target Spotlight illuminates on screen and the SpotLite​® Pointer shines on the surface being scanned when the center of a stud is found.

Zircon SuperScan​™ K3 Features

  • NEW! Target Control™ (TC™) Mode locates the center, edges, and direction of wood studs, and not metal, up to ¾ in. (19 mm) deep behind surfaces. Identifies ‘safe-to-drill’ zones between adjacent drywall screws, nails, and protector plates.
  • StudScan Mode locates center, edges, and direction of wood and metal studs up to ¾ in. (19 mm) deep
  • DeepScan® Mode doubles the scan depth of wood and metal studs up to 1½ in. (38 mm) deep
  • Metal Scan Mode locates ferrous metal up to 3 in. (75 mm) deep and non-ferrous metal up to 1½ in. (38 mm) deep
  • WireWarning® Detection alerts to live, unshielded AC wires up to 2 in. (50 mm) deep
  • LoLevel™ Detector displays low (weak) signal objects, such as plastic water pipes, while in TC™ mode
  • Signal Strength Indicator helps distinguish between shallow and deep targets while in StudScan and DeepScan® modes
  • MetalliWarning™ turns on when metal is detected in TC™, StudScan, and DeepScan® modes
  • ACT™ (Auto Correcting Technology) automatically corrects common errors, such as when scanning begins over a stud
  • Target Spotlight illuminates on screen when target is detected
  • ColorTrip® Display illuminates pale blue in TC™ mode, green in DeepScan® mode, blue in Metal Scan mode, and red to alert to the presence of live AC electricity
  • SpotLite® Pointer shines an arrow-shaped light on the scanned surface to indicate the target location
  • “V” marker groove enables accurate marking of target location
  • Low Battery Indicator for optimum performance
